LET IT WARM UP?

Got a question for everyone. Do you let your rig warm up or just get in it and go??

Gotta warm 'er up... Unless it's only sat for like an hour or two, then I just get in and go. I know I don't have a 6.0, but I would do the same if I did. From my experience, a cold diesel is not a happy diesel.

It depends how warm the truck is already. I let it warm up some usually, never just get in and "Go." If anything I will get in and take it real easy.

Below say 25 degrees, let it warm up. The oil needs time to get up to temp and everything, watch the fellas on youtube with the cold-starts and getting right on the gas. Thats what you want to avoid. Some of the time has to do to the oil your running, and the temp outside. I'd advise not to idle more than 10 mins, too much carbon builds up, leads to other issues. Once you get going, try to keep boost under 10 psi until its up to temp.

My 2010 6.4 will not warm up just sitting idle if the temp is anything under 20 degrees.

I guess I could let her sit idle for an hour and burn 20.00 worth of gas.

For the most part I let it idle for about 3 or 4 minutes, long enough for the oil to get moving and then keep my revs under 2000 and my boost under 20 psi until she is warmed up.

I also will not turn the engine off unless its been comepletely warmed up first.

Do you have any gauges? I always get mine to 100+ before I move and 180+ before I romp on it.
